‘Basketball Wives LA’ star Jackie Christie and retired Los Angeles Clippers player husband Doug showed their support for same-sex marriage rights on their 17th wedding anniversary by renewing their marriage vows at a gay nightclub supported by the NoH8 Campaign.
On Monday night (July 9), dozens of guests filled the upstairs lounge at West Hollywood club Eleven to witness The Christies give a nod to the fight for marriage equality.
“As life-long supporters of the gay community, Doug and I remain humbled by the overwhelming love, acceptance and friendship they have extended with open arms while treating us like family,” the Advocate reports Three Track Jack saying at the ceremony, according to a statement.
“As we celebrate 17 years of marriage, it weighs heavy on our hearts that the same love shared by many of our friends is considered ‘less than’ and is not widely recognized due to antiquated laws, lack of acceptance, and misperceptions, among other discriminatory factors.”
“Tonight was nothing less than a celebration of the recent advancements made in the fight for Marriage Equality, but also a reminder of the work that still needs to be done. Until that battle is won, Doug and I will remain soldiers on the frontlines.”
